Blast off into the blackness of space on the Magic Kingdom’s most exciting roller coaster. You’ll depart from ‘Space Station Seventy-Five,’ your gateway to the galaxies! This fast, indoor ride has sudden turns and short drops, but no big, stomach-in-your-throat drops. The darkness makes it scarier than it really is. The indoor queue and ride loading areas are rich with visual detail and interactive video games you can play while you wait (in the standby queue only). There are two slightly different coasters—go left for one, right for the other when you reach the loading area. Renovations in 2010 brought a smoother ride, more comfortable ‘ships,’ a darker ‘flight’ (with brighter ‘stars’), better effects, new soundtrack, in-vehicle sound system, and a general sprucing up! Transfer from ECV to wheelchair, then transfer from wheelchair to ride. 44”/112 cm height restriction. Adult supervision. Health warning. Allie’s KidTip: “I loved it! But it is bumpy. Try to sit in the middle. Ride it again if you can!”Get a full copy of PassPorter's Walt Disney World guidebook here.

My 10 and 12 year old daughters fell in love with Space Mountain this trip and it's still fun for me!

This is a mix for our family. It isn't as dark as Disneyland's version. My husband is tall and refuses to ride it at WDW. It is jerky. I love to ride it. Now I will say this can be dangerous for people in wheelchairs. I had one a few years back. My Mom was pushing it. On the escalated out we had a major malfunction trying to get off it. The wheelchair almost fell over and some poor guy had to hope over the side or we all would have been taken out. It is hard for the disabled that need a wheelchair. We refuse to ever do that again when someone has a wheelchair. I still get chills ever time we exit walking now.

I hate it, my wife loves it. If you're a fan of coasters, then you should definitely go. If you don't like coasters, then definitely stay away.

My husband's rating because I don't ride coasters (fear of drops): Like the coaster but it is too jerky & needs to be revamped.
Pawleys4 gave this a rating of 8 on 06/27/2016 at 9:40:57 pm EDT
Definitely a ride for those who can handle rough coasters. (The one in Disneyland is much, much smoother.) You really need to tense up your legs, gut, and neck or you will get banged around. Not trying to discourage you...just letting you know what you need to do to help make it (more) enjoyable. Be ready for your photo moment just as you make the initial turn before the lift!
RandyF1979 gave this a rating of 8 on 06/26/2016 at 8:20:01 pm EDT
I like the thrill, but VERY jerky and discourage anyone with a back/neck injury to avoid this ride.

Love this coaster! I scream and laugh the entire ride. Every time.

Great classic ride. Bumpy. A little difficult for taller people to fit in the car.

Love this ride !! So much fun ride it several times every trip with my tweet and teen kids. Totally dark with fast turns and dips.

A true Disney classic. It's a must ride . You can't go to Magic Kingdom without being able to say that you rode Space Mountain

A true classic. Friends were lucky enough to ride with the lights on. Hope to experience that one day, but not due to a technical issue like they had.

I love it. But it's got really rough over the years.

This is a classic. It is something we do every time. However, it needs the soundtrack that Disneyland has.

Fun for ages eight and up truck. Probably too scary for the littler ones but fun, zippy roller coaster with cool special effects.

Have to admit, I was afraid of this one! But I couldn't show fear with my daughter already laughing at me! This has become one of my favorite rides. It's a shame how much it breaks down during the day though. One time we got to see it with the lights on while on the TTA.

I despise this ride! The wait is always long, the car is super small, feel like I am getting squished into the seat ( I'm 5'10), The ride itself is super jerky and if I don't sit as loose as a rag doll, I pull a muscle in either my neck or back. I avoid this at all costs.

Classic attraction that can't be missed! Be aware that it can be a little jerky, and is in the dark.

Iconic Disney attraction but as I age, I don't do so well on roller coasters anymore. If I'm going to make myself feel queasy, I'd rather ride Rock 'n Roller coaster.

Feels like you are going faster than you are because you are in the dark. Not being able to see where you're going is what makes this coaster so fun!
